|Title||Developing reusable technology workshops to enhance digital literacy|
This project helps graduate students develop research-enabling digital scholarship skills through workshops offered by the UBC Library Research Commons. The output will be a series of six reusable workshops about digital scholarship technologies with potential to enhance students’ academic research and future work. The project responds to growing interest in data science among UBC students and focuses on technologies relevant to geospatial data systems (GIS). We focus on GIS for its multidisciplinary appeal and its relevance to curricula in Geography, Forestry, and the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA).
The project will hire six content developers (postdoctoral fellows and/or graduate students). Each will receive facilitation training from the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT), then develop and deliver a two-hour workshop on a GIS topic. Workshop content will be deposited into an open repository. Future iterations of the project could target other research-enabling skills aligned with student needs.
